All the whole I got “Your AHG application received bla bla “
Past 2 days the whole line on grant is missing from the page.. means I got no loan approved/ granted ? Does that mean my key collection is coming soon?

I think if no grant approve hdb will also notify right? So u just wait lor. Maybe still havent update.

They are processing your documents. Should be soon you will see the grant approval. then after grant added into your CPF.. within a year or 2.. u should receive the appointment letter for keys collection. I guess u can already start confirming your ID.. your keys is coming soon.

Yes.. as long as it is not resale flat.. Defect check is a must.. for my unit i guess i'm quite lucky again.. only the master toilet door has defect.. once close is so hard to open up. I went up the day as soon as i collected the keys.. then late noon i went down to my nearest HDB branch to submit the defect list.. next day HDB called me say they will go down to my unit to rectify the defect in a week time.

I did very simple basic check only..

1) All door close n open
2) Test all keys lock (Dont neglect ur letter box)
3) open and close all windows, try the lock as well
4) bring a pail, fill up water and pour in the toilet floor see whether the water flows off or not.
5) wall/ tiles crack
5) optional: bring a broom to clean your bomb shelter so that you at least hav a clean area to keep your stuff while doing reno.
6) optional: Hand soap n hand towel.. (its very very dusty!)
7) optional: Chairs & Fan...(in case your parents or in law going.. they can sit. end of the day i throw these in the bomb shelter)
8) rubbish bag!! to clear alllllll the brochure etc... real lots!!

For those who rushing to move in one.. try to settle everything on the day when u collect the key..

My scenerio, 9.15am appointment.. finish everything at 11am. went home pack up and go over around 12+pm, do all those pineapple rolling etc etc.. ID came up 2+ explain explain and check defect again.. 4pm i went to HDB hand over the defect list liao. Next day ID applied permit for renovation already. Next week my air con will start to install and start reno :s12:

Congrats,by tomorrow or latest monday you should see the $$ in your CPF. Then just email to HDB or call them say you already receive the grant. Can arrange for key collection early or not? You can smell your keys already.. should be before 2nd week of Aug.

Time to Finalize your ID :)
